Cotton ball sheep is a wonderful card company that takes inspiration from childhood crafts (hence, the name) and imagination and turns them into eco-friendly, handmade, original designs. I have personally ordered these cards and can tell you that they are even better in person. The simplicity of the design, the weight of the recycled cardstock (that you just don't get from most store bought cards), and the fun colored envelopes that are paired with each card are sure to make you smile. Cotton ball sheep is perfect for several occassions and can be customized to your request. A bundle of these cards would make a great Christmas or birthday gift and can be ordered on Etsy.
Tse Yang is a fine Chinese restaurant that originated in Paris, made a life in New York, and has now ventured to the Middle East, to The Pearl in Doha, Qatar. The Pearl is a very upscale, paradise retreat, located in the Arabian Gulf. The man-made island offers 5 star hotels, vacation homes, high end shopping and restaurants. Tse Yang opened in June 2010 and the design is nothing short of amazing.
Women have suffered for personal fashion/style/image since the beginning of time. From Chinese foot binding to modern day botox, women will do the extreme. While wearing painfully, uncomfortable shoes is not nearly as crazy as pricking your face with needles or binding your feet, it still falls under the category of absurd. Women will complain about the discomort of their shoes, end up with quarter-sized blisters and foot spasms, but it's typically not a thought to throw them out and put on something sensible. Well, good news, shoe designers are FINALLY hearing our cries! Designers like, Aerosoles, Born, and Sofft, are stepping up their comfort and style game and bringing us shoes that are not only comfortable but stylish. I know that they aren't all exactly show stoppers but I definitley think it's a step in the right direction (pun not intended).
